55Bill M. & Family’s spot is to die for! We enjoyed the space and it is exactly as pictured/listed. It was easy to find, get in, and had lots of beautiful landscaping to enjoy. Fence is super secure— our biggest concern due to our small pups being hounds and willing to go to great lengths to escape. Can’t wait to come back!
55Cleo had such a fun time today! Thanks so much for having us! The flowers smell lovely!
55Annie had a blast! Lots of places to sniff in this beautifully landscaped yard. I could relax because my Escape Artist doggy could not jump the very secure fence even when she spotted the deer next door.
55We had a great time
55I can't say enough positive things about this spot! Clean, well maintained, with toys and water. Such a beautiful backyard with lots of places to relax and take in the scenery. My dog absolutely loved it and so did the humans!
55Hooper had a great time! The large yard and woods were secure and so much fun! Toys, baggies and water were provided. We will be back for sure!!
55This place is great. Plenty of room for my pup to run & sniff. Now he’s happily napping on the couch.
55So great! Really nice yard, my 2 Aussies spent 2 hours running and sniffing and playing. The pool cover is safe indeed. My one Aussie found a hole and got into the pool area and walked on the pool cover and it was perfectly safe, just some wet paws. It was perfect. We will be back!
55A wonderful property! Our dogs absolutely loved it. It was clean and had lots of toys and was exactly as described. We will definitely be coming back again! Thank you so much! 
55This was such a beautiful and fun spot! The dogs had such a good time, only spot that has ever offered water and bug spray for people. Thanks so much for having us!

    Host replied: We are so happy to hear you enjoyed our spot. We have an escape artist also, we have to make sure the fence is super secure. Hope to have you back soon, the mountain laurels and dogwoods in bloom are just around the corner!

    Cleo had such a fun time today! Thanks so much for having us! The flowers smell lovely!

    Host replied: We’re glad Cleo and you had a lot to sniff today! We generally have something in bloom from now until the first frost. The lilacs are out and the rhododendrons and Mountain Laurel will soon follow. Hope to have you back soon.

    Annie had a blast! Lots of places to sniff in this beautifully landscaped yard. I could relax because my Escape Artist doggy could not jump the very secure fence even when she spotted the deer next door.

    Host replied: Great to hear Annie enjoyed herself and the fence is escape artist proof. One of our dogs is an escape artist alsoand that’s why we stopped going to regular dog parks and created our own little slice of doggy paradise! Hope to host you again soon.
